New Clip+ ... 'path too deep' copy errors.

Hello,

 

Can anyone please explain this problem?

I've read up on it thru Google and seems to be a 'maximum 255 characters' type error

where Windows XP can't copy anything over that limit.

 

Thing is - as an experiment - I put a file at the root of my hard drive, in C, where it cannot

possibly be over that limit and still cannot copy to the Music folder of the Clip.

 

I set my USB mode as MSC.

 

Can anyone shed any light on this? A workaround?

After an hours' reading/messing about, I still have no music on my new toy! WAAAH!!Smiley Happy

Any info gratefully received, thanks....

Change the filename to something really short --1-Song.mp3 or something--and see if it likes that.

You can use "Long Path Tool"

I guess the path on your player may be too deep?

Hi all, I have been suffering from accessing, managing and even renaming files
>>> that have more than 255 characters over a long time. I have tried various ways
>>> but failed. Then I have searched this problem in internet. Then I have found a solution. This software is very easy to use. Named Long path Tool.
